Brand Diatomaceous Earth Crawling Insect Killer 4 lb

The experts behind Garden Safe® brand know home gardening is as much about how you grow as what you grow. Garden Safe brand products help flowers, fruits and veggies thrive right up to harvest. Organic gardeners trust our solutions to keep garden pest and disease control simple—and let nature do the rest. Let goodness grow.

Garden Safe® Brand Diatomaceous Earth Crawling Insect Killer is good for organic gardening to kill German cockroaches, ants (except carpenter, harvester and pharaoh ants), beetles (except wood-destroying beetles), fleas, aphids, mealybugs and other crawling insects as listed. Use this diatomaceous earth-based formula outdoors on plants and on the soil around plants to kill listed crawling insects by contact. When dusted on insects, the powder coats the exoskeleton and absorbs oils and fats, causing them to dry out and die. It also cuts into the insect’s shell, causing it to dehydrate further.  Apply the pest-killing dust with a hand duster, power duster or squeeze bottle. Dust insects directly, if possible. Repeat application when dust is no longer present or if insects are detected. Do not apply to hardscapes, including brick, stone, wood or metal surfaces.

Apply Garden Safe® Brand Diatomaceous Earth Crawling Insect Killer to areas as directed. Use adequate ventilation and avoid breathing dust. Wear a suitable dust mask when using this product if prolonged exposure is expected.
